Appearance - pours a deep amber hazy body with a 2 finger white head that reduces quickly to a small ring of foam. 4.25

Smell - smells much like a Flanders.. Creamy, pale malt, Lacto tartness, cherry juice, citrus rind, some fruityness , spices 4.5

Taste- starts off hugely sour with lactic acid, lemon juice, sour apple, and citrus. The follow through definitely exhibits melon and guava, with some banana. The finish is creamy with some caramel and pale malt. The finish is astringently tart. 4.5

Mouthfeel- super carbonated, light and refreshing. 4.25

Very tasty, very sour, maybe a little too sour and carbonated and that may take away from the guava notes. Nevertheless nicely done.
4.25

Very sour if you drink it early. Sweetens up over time. Unless you want it extremely sour sit on it for a few months.

On tap at Cigar City. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy burnt orange. Small head, but they tempered the pour rate so it wouldn't foam over. Retains a decent collar.

Smell - Fruity, like an apple aroma. Not distinctly guava. Acidic. Malty too.

Taste - Tart and pretty yummy. Quite malty. Sour apple. A bit of graininess. Guava kicks up in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Medium body, definitely heavy for a sour saison.

Overall - I don't remember regular Guava Grove very well but I don't remember it being as good as this.
